Over the years, both the battery capacity and charging speeds of smartphones have increased drastically. With the advent of Quick Charge 5, Qualcomm is planning to take the charging speeds to an unheard-of level. As claimed by Qualcomm, the new charging technology can charge a smartphone from 0 to 50 percent power in hardly 5 minutes. Additionally, it takes around 15 minutes for the device to reach from 0 to 100 percent power. The capacity of the battery used for these tests was 4,500 mAh.
Qualcomm Quick Charge 5 will help future Android smartphones to attain 100W+ fast charging. Well, Quick Charge 5 is the fastest commercial charging technology in existence.
So here’s everything you need to know about this helpful technology.
Qualcomm Quick Charge 5: The Futuristic Charging Technology
As most of you might or might not know, Qualcomm was the first company that introduced the concept of fast charging back in 2013 with Quick Charge 1. The first-generation technology offered 10W fast-charging. Later, in 2015 charging speeds were increased to 18W with Quick Charge 2.0.
Unfortunately, with Quick Charge 3.0 and Quick Charge 4.0, the speed remained 18W but the company offered improvements in the power efficiency and heating department. Lastly, with Quick Charge 4+, Qualcomm brought 27W and 45W chargers.
The newly launched charging technology is presently supported by only two processors namely Snapdragon 865 and 865 Plus. Surprisingly, this new technology is also backward compatible with older versions of Quick Charge and the footprint of 100W+ fast chargers will be similar to that of 45W chargers.
Similar to the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel, more and more smartphones in the future will offer Dual/Triple Charge technology, and thankfully Quick Charge 5 supports it. Lastly, it’s around 10° Celsius cooler than the previous generation’s fast-charge technologies and it supports both USB-PD and Type-C.
We can start seeing mainstream smartphones supporting this technology by either Q3 or Q4 of 2020.
